BDO announces winners of the BDO ESG Awards 2022

BDO, the world’s fifth largest accountancy network, today announced and honoured the winners of the fourth BDO ESG Awards (the “Awards”). This competition is widely supported by listed enterprises and this year’s winners were selected from a pool of 90 nominations, all of which showcased excellence in ESG reporting and disclosure. The awardees were chosen by a prestigious and professional panel of judges in recognition of the outstanding sustainability initiatives they have implemented. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s BDO ESG Awards Presentation Ceremony was held online, with stakeholders and the general public invited to witness the efforts and achievements of the winning companies in relation to ESG reporting over the past year.
In response to rapid global warming, companies should fulfil their corporate responsibilities and implement measures to reduce carbon emissions and greenhouse gases generated from business activities, thus realising a long-term net zero emission business model. This year, the Theme Award adopts the theme of “Carbon Neutrality”, and in 2021 BDO International launched the BDO Sustainability Movement, promising to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. All BDO offices are working together to fulfil this commitment and to avoid adverse impacts on the planet. BDO also aims to recognise companies that have achieved net zero emissions and have performed well in all aspects of carbon reduction (see the full list below).

Dr Carlye Tsui BBS MBE JP, Chairman of the Judging Panel of the “Best in Reporting Awards” and Chief Executive Officer of The Hong Kong Institute of Directors, said, “ESG adoption is driven by board leadership, corporate culture and staff action together. ESG reporting serves to convey the company’s values and contribution to the stakeholders. I am pleased with the entries of high standards and the awarded report of excellence. The awards project is once again laudable in promoting sustainability.”

Dr William Yu, Chairman of the Judging Panel of the “Best in ESG Awards” and Founder and Chief Executive Officer of World Green Organisation, said, “As we know ESG is currently the spotlight of the market, it’s good to see how award participants are addressing business precedents in their reports and preparing for TCFD frame work so as to address the primaries. Being a board member, I will encourage active participation as it is equally important. Overall, I’m delighted to see BDO continues the determination to bring a positive impact to the society.

Ms Karen Ho, Chairman of the Judging Panel of the “Theme Award” and Head of Corporate and Community Sustainability, WWF-Hong Kong, said, “Thanks to BDO for organising this ESG “Theme Award” with focus on carbon neutrality. We are at a defining moment in the fight to tackle climate change, to limit warming to 1.5 degree Celsius and avoid the most catastrophic impacts for people and nature. The corporate sector has a central role to play by rapidly reducing your emissions in line with climate science. Companies must work with your supply chain, customers, investors, regulators and civil society to take decisive actions for sustainability.”

Mr Clement Chan, MH JP, Managing Director of Assurance, BDO in Hong Kong, said, “The BDO ESG Awards has entered its fourth year. We aim to continue encouraging listed companies to raise their awareness of social responsibility and sustainable development initiatives. 2022 is a challenging year, with each company needing to find ways to reinvent itself to maintain operations as the epidemic rages on. We are pleased to see many old friends, as well as some new faces, participating in this year’s Awards, demonstrating their continuous efforts and outstanding achievements in ESG. As this year’s Awards has adopted the theme of “Carbon Neutrality”, we are also happy to see many companies showcasing their efforts to achieve net zero emissions through carbon reduction, in addition to incorporating this goal into their long-term business model. BDO as part of the Net Zero Financial Service Providers Alliance, has committed to supporting the goal of global net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Mr Johnson Kong, Managing Director of Non-Assurance, BDO in Hong Kong, said, “We received nearly 90 nominations for this year’s Awards. On behalf of BDO, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to the judges, media partners and supporting organisations for making this year’s Awards possible. I would also like to thank all participating companies. We are excited to witness their achievements and continuous growth in the area of ESG. Affected by the pandemic, we have shifted the award presentation ceremony to an online mode for two consecutive years. We look forward to meeting you next year to share the joy and witness the achievements of the winning companies together.” Going forward, we at BDO will continue to offer support to Hong Kong listed companies, help them raise ESG standards and performance and in turn promote the overall development of ESG in Hong Kong.”

Mr Ricky Cheng, Director and Head of Risk Advisory, BDO in Hong Kong, said, “As a keen advocate for continuous enhancements in ESG, we are delighted to see more and more listed companies committing to raising the quality of ESG practices and disclosure. With the increasing standard of ESG reporting and the outstanding performance of the participating companies, competition was intense for this year’s ‘ESG Report of the Year Awards’, making it extremely difficult for the judges to select the winners. We would like to thank the judges who have applied their expertise and experience in the judging process to ensure the Awards are credible and representative. To capitalise on this trend, BDO will spare no efforts to increase ESG engagement, thereby further strengthening Hong Kong’s leading position as an International Financial Centre.”

Winerz Announces Platform Launch

Tallinn, Estonia, May 18, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – Winerz, a play-to-earn [P2E] gaming platform that enables competitive 1v1 head-to-head games powered by a token economy, has announced the launch of its platform. Released in early 2021, Winerz currently supports FIFA. And it is working to incorporate the novel blockchain ecosystem as it seeks to strengthen its international growth.

As one of the P2E games, Winerz hopes to disrupt the current market. It is currently one of the few platforms to allow video game players to earn by playing games in the crypto market. Winerz is leveraging blockchain, the underlying technology of most crypto projects, to deliver a skill-based and wagering P2E model to any platform, game, and anywhere.

Blockchain will secure all transactions on the platform. Additionally, players will have the privilege of earning tokens while playing FIFA and other exciting games.

The Winerz Vision

Founded by Jacques Garois and Thomas Ferrière, Winerz is committed to introducing blockchain to any game, platform, and anywhere. Ranging from 1v1 battles to multi-player, competitive battle games and tournament-based games, Winerz can be adapted or integrated to any platform—mobile, desktop, and console. Furthermore, anyone can seamlessly connect to the Winerz API with a mobile phone or laptop anywhere.

For gamers, Winerz will allow them to compete with opponents to earn money. For publishers, the P2E gaming technology will allow them to turn any game into skill-based competitions, thus enabling them to monetize their games.

The integration of a token economy model into the P2E gaming industry by Winerz will enable convenient smart contract-based funds escrow geared towards supporting large-scale betting and tournaments. Winerz introduces a native token—$WNZ. This token will empower staking, payouts, betting, and NFT trades.

Current Achievements

Winerz raised over half a million in its 2021 seed round led by Bellone Holding and launched a beta version in the UK and Germany. This beta version had more than 30k members, €150k in total monthly bets, and over thirty thousand matches played monthly.

Winerz also raised $3 million to launch $WNZ.

Winerz is on course to implement the token economy after conducting a successful token launch on four different launchpads – Solrazr, Cropper Finance, Solster, Gamespad, and Bullperks. Additionally, $WNZ is listed on and Raydium exchanges and CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko, two leading crypto analytics websites.

Winerz has received support and backing from Big Brain Holdings and others.

Project Roadmap

Utilizing blockchain technology, Winerz has written a sustainable, ambitious, yet realistic project roadmap. Winerz, in the remaining quarters of 2022, will announce a few ambassadors, its NFT marketplace, and partnerships with brands. Additionally, an NFT collection that will unlock the tournament feature will be released. In addition, Winerz is working on adding more games to its platform.

About Winerz

Winerz is a blockchain-based P2E technology that enables skill-based wagering and competitive 1vs1 games. Built for every platform, every game, and for everyone, regardless of location, Winerz will allow gamers to earn money for playing video games. Winerz, through a series of innovative features, hopes to disrupt the blockchain gaming market, and its forthcoming partnerships with relevant brands will help achieve this.

United Labs GmbH Announces the Launch of Its Next Generation NFT Project – United Bear Society

United Labs GmbH announces the launch of next generation NFT project called United Bear Society. Their mission is to unite people through positive thinking & strength, in a world where segregation and discrimination sometimes get in between our shared origins.

Their vision and mission are fuelled with pragmatic idealism, with a focus on connecting the virtual world with exclusive socials events in real life: bringing like-minded people together through NFTs.

The United Bear Society will bring together people from all 6 (inhabited) continents, with 6 distinguished characters symbolising a bear species that is inherent to that geographic region.

Generally speaking, bears are renown around the world for their strength and they symbolise courage; specifically the courage to evolve, be open-minded and trust our instincts.

This is a NFT collection of 9900 unique characters, with more than 400 unique traits and features which are distinctive by their rarity. The team will make these social bears come alive in the form of an animation movie, create online and offline friends, and then together manifest the United Bear Society.

Each NFT-holder gains access to an exclusive club of creative people, from artists to musicians, from actors to entrepreneurs in real life: where art meets business, music and film.

Focusing on their similarities, without being divided by political, ethnical, gender related or other differences, they are following the call of Patrick Henry, a Founding Father of the United States: “United we stand!”

In this exclusive club, each character symbolises one of the 6 continents, with traits that relate to specific customs and traditions, hobbies, and heritage, belonging to each continent.

The creators of the United Bear Society chose a very capacious and diverse image of bears, from panda and koala to grizzly and brown bears. The distribution is randomly mixed to ascertain the fair distribution of artwork to future members.

There is a program of exclusive international events, community meetups, interaction, and engagement, which are set to distinguish the United Bear Society from any other NFT project out there.

Each event in real life embodies the values which the creators want to share with the community: Unity, Love, Harmony, and Freedom. All these values will be embodied in a special animation movie in collaboration with one of the biggest names in that game, set to be launched soon.

The CEO of the company notes: “We are a project where words are put into practice, not by means of a fancy whitepaper promising the world, but by means of real-life partnerships and events, with well-known artists and brands worldwide.”

To serve as a bridge between the virtual world and reality, the United Bear Society has established partnerships with a number of businesses in the fields of business, hospitality, music, art, and film to carry out exclusive meetups.

The first event will be held in Ibiza, Spain, as a prelaunch meetup, where lucky community members get the chance to meet and greet the team on this magical island for a week full of surprises. Such an approach again emphasizes the true uniqueness of the project, with a focus on real life experiences.

True believers will be rewarded with entries to exclusive events on a regular basis, United Bear Society merchandise, and more.

The number of pegged unique NFTs will provide different levels of exclusive membership and access to the United Bear Society’s activities. These can also be used by holders on their social media, as profile picture, taking the message further, as….UNITED WE STAND!

More details and info on the real-life events are on the website.
